Not Just Your Morning Java
We all know coffee is a staple many people drink to start their day, whether it's a cup of black organic coffee from the pot brewing in your home, or a latte from your local coffee shop.
But we bet you didn't know there are a few other ways coffee can be used to make your days a little easier.
- Get rid of odors. Have you seen coffee grounds in airplane bathrooms? It's a quick and cheap way to get rid of smells in small, enclosed spaces. You can try it in your bathroom, garage or car to get rid of the stink.
- Exfoliate your skin. You can rub wet coffee grounds directly onto your skin, or add some oils for a moisturizing scrub. Bonus: the caffeine in the coffee helps keep your skin looking fresh, too.
- Pamper your hair. Rinsing dry, clean hair with strong coffee can make it shinier. Pour cooled coffee onto dry hair, wrap in a towel (that you don't care if it gets stained), leave in for 20 minutes and rinse. Keep it up for a week and compare.
